Woman To Get Classics Prize

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Lydia K. Raleigh '77 will be the first woman to win the Classics Department's $6000 Cory Prize when the Classics faculty confirms her nomination for the award.

Raleigh said yesterday she did not apply for the prize, adding that the department "dumps it in your lap."

Raleigh said she plans to use the award money to do graduate work at Oxford University.

Glen W. Bowersock '57, Professor of Greek and Latin, said yesterday the Classics faculty awards the prize to meritorious seniors who want to study either classical philology or classical archaeology abroad.

The Classics faculty must still accept Raleigh's nomination, but Bowersock said, "I expect the nomination to be approved. There has never been any trouble in the past."

Raleigh said she hopes to spend two years at Oxford's Hertford College, adding that she chose Hertford because it has a special program in the Classics and is coeducational.
